Future of Manufacturing for Military Applications

STO-MP-AVT-267

Currently manufacturing is in a renaissance era as engineers and professionals transition from conventional production operations based on a subtractive methodology to learning and applying new skills in digital technology. The manufacturing industry is poised on creating a vision for the factory of the future that builds high quality and performance products sustainably, economically, ecologically and globally. And additive manufacturing is targeted as a key enabler in this future for building diverse creative solutions layer by layer with advanced materials/alloys. The identification of additive technologies being important for manufacturing and re-manufacturing for military applications is longstanding. Complementary to additive manufacturing technology especially for larger scale production are advances in manufacturing technologies, such as automation, robotics, process simulation, tooling, nanomaterials, functionally gradient surfaces, virtual processes and micro-machining. AVT-267 had the objective to discuss the future of manufacturing technologies in light of the availability and rapid development of additive manufacturing and the general transition towards automation, robotics and intelligent/advanced materials and technologies. The influence of new technologies on solving obsolescence issues of parts, tooling and manufacturing technologies for military logistics and operations has been discussed. Besides the current manufacturing processes, also the life cycle and disposal of weapon systems were reviewed.
